At Brunnett Dentistry, both the hygienist and the doctor will do visual and manual oral cancer screenings of your mouth at each visit. We look for any unusual signs, including unexplained swelling, sores, bleeding, pain, or numbness. We also use a Velscope to find any problems that aren’t visible to the naked eye. The Velscope’s non-invasive blue light shows us problems you can’t see or feel yet. By being thorough each and every time, we hope to catch any signs of oral cancer as soon as possible as early detection is key.
